Sounds promising and *very* scary (implementation-wise) to me at the 
same time ;-)

An easier option might be to improve the locking method in DocSynch?
Its author posted a comment on my blog after I reported your test 
results there, see

I'm thinking of a scenario like:
1. user types a character somewhere
2. DocSynch tries to lock document, if unable puts the lock request in 
a queue (visible to users)
3. lock is released if user does not type anything for a few seconds
3. user can relase lock manually

I know this is much less than what SubEthaEdit does, but it might still 
be a very useful tool.

Sorry to interrupt your dreams, just wanted to point this option out ;-)
